The UK’s first ISS Shochu Advisor course this April – BSA Members get £70 off!

Shochu is tipped to be the next “it” drink. Indeed, in Japan shochu is consumed more than sake itself. In collaboration with the International Sake School, London-based VSF’s Sake and Shochu Educator and British Sake Association Chairman Marie Cheong-Thong is launching the Shochu Adviser course in the UK this April.
